Haploid plants can be developed from ovary or ovule cultures. As soon as the starch deposition starts within the microspore there is no further development towards sporophyte.

Appropriate treatment of anthers is required for good success of haploid production. These are the haploids that possess half the number of chromosomes from a diploid species e. Anthers at a very young stage with microspore mother cells or tetrads and late pllant with bi-nucleate microspores are usually not suitable for androgenesis.

The variation in response of anthers from plants grown under different environmental conditions may be due to the differences in endogenous level of growth regulators. For such plant species, this technique is superior to another culture technique. Ultra violet rays or X-rays may be used to induce chromosomal breakage and their subsequent elimination to produce haploids.

These plants may grow up to a flowering stage, but viable gametes cannot be formed due to lack of one set of homologous chromosomes. Subsequently, Bourgin and Hitsch obtained the first full-pledged haploid plants from Nicotiana tabacum. This is a question and answer forum for students, teachers and general visitors for exchanging cuture, answers and notes.

The existence of haploids was discovered as early as by Bergner in Datura stramonium. If they are at the correct stage, each anther is gently separated from the filament and the intact anthers are inoculated on a nutrient medium. There are mainly two approaches for wndrogenesis colchicine treatment and endomitosis. When the anther culture medium is supplemented with activated charcoal, enhanced androgenesis is observed. The success was much higher by in vitro techniques.


The microspore divides unequally as in pathways I and II. The basic principle of native androgenesis is to stop andgogenesis conversion of pollen cell into a androgeenesis, and force its development into a plant. There are many ways of colchicine treatment to achieve diploidization for production of homozygous plants. The temperature shock helps in dissolution of microtubules and causes abnormal division of microspores.

The presence of only one ovary per flower is another disadvantage. Answer Now and help others.

For obtaining homozygous diploid lines, the plants derived through anther culture must be analysed for their ploidy level and then the following methods can be applied: This property can be exploited in some cases to obtain the homozygous plant. In general, microspores ranging from tetrad to bi-nucleate stages are more responsive.

Anther walls act as conditioning factors and promote culture growth. The plants grown under best natural environmental conditions light, temperature, nutrition, CO 2 etc. Many workers prefer pollen culture, even though the degree of success is low, as it offers the following advantages: When plants are treated with ethreal, multinucleated pollens are produced.

The uninucleate microspore androgehesis equal division to form two daughter cells of equal size e. There are four different pathways to form the multicellular condition of pollen from the unicellular pollen Fig. The generative cell, on the other hand, degenerates after one or two divisions—e. This induces callus formation followed by differentiation.

These media in fact are the same as used in plant cell and tissue cultures. The pollen can be extracted by pressing and squeezing the anthers with a glass rod against the sides of a beaker. Several markers are in use. Whenever a liquid medium is used, the ovaries are placed on a filter paper or allowed to float over the medium with pedicel anfrogenesis through filter paper.

Flowers from relatively younger plants, flowering at the beginning of flower-season are more responsive. Two approaches androgneesis on morphology and genetics are commonly used to detect or identify haploids. Further, induction of androgenesis is better if anthers are stored at low temperature, prior to culture e.

By this way haploids can be detected in a population of diploids. Some workers choose a breeding approach for improvement of genotype before they are used in androgenesis.

Viable and large pollen smaller pollen do not regenerate are concentrated by filtration, washed and collected. This results in the production of diploid homozygous cells and ultimately plants. Young plants, grown under optimal conditions of light, temperature and humidity, are suitable for androgenesis.

This multicellular mass may tissje a callus which later differentiates into a plant through callus phase. It is possible to plantt female gametophytes megaspores of angiosperms to develop into a sporophyte. Answer Now and help others. Haploid plants are obtained either by androgenesis or gynogenesis.

In certain plant species, addition of glutathione and ascorbic acid promotes androgenesis. This is in fact an abnormal pathway induced to achieve in vitro androgenesis. The plants so produced are referred to as gynogenic haploids.
